Vegan Scone Recipe & Shopping Guide

Vegan Scone

You are in for quite the treat! We will tell you how to make scones from BBC good food. We will also be sharing a list of grocery stores where you can find your vegan products for your recipe. 

If you don’t feel like baking, that is okay! We will be sharing vegan bakeries in the UK that offer scones! Scones are more challenging to come across, so if none of these places are available near you, try to search “vegan scones near me.”

If everything is still a bit too far, then enjoy the exciting adventure of making vegan scones with your friends and family!

Vegan Scone Ingredients

  • 350g self-raising flour
  • 95g vegan vegetable spread 
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar 
  • 150ml soy milk
  • Jam of choice

Vegan Scone Recipe

  1. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar into a bowl and mix. Once mixed, add the vegetable spread and rub the mixture until you have fine breadcrumbs. You can also use a food processor to get the texture you want.
  2. Create a smooth dough by gradually stirring the milk in the flour mixture. 
  3. Dust the surface with flour and gently roll out the dough. You want to gently roll it out until it is 2cm thick. 
  4. Transfer the dough onto a baking tray lined with parchment. Place the tray in the fridge for 30 mins.
  5. After the 30 mins have past remove the dough and cut out the scones. Use a 7cm cutter to cut out the scones and place them top side down. Leave a 2cm gap between each one on a separate baking tray. Brush with milk but be sure it doesn’t drip on the sides. 
  6. Put the scones into the freezer for 15 minutes and heat the oven to 220C. 
  7. Remove from the freezer and bake for 15 – 20 minutes until golden brown. Serve with the jam and vegan cream of choice.
